MON (Monitor) Monitor functions such as request levels, switch, raw NMEA output.
FIND Beep and flash display. E.g. to identify single unit among multiple units. Backlight should Flash 500  on then 500 ms off and beep 500 ms on /500 ms off for total of 5 seconds.

Note: For all commands except LIST, inserting a ‘?’ character in place of a setting value will cause the unit to respond with the data. EG; PLAY:?<CR> will return <filename><CR> of current file if playing else ERR<CR>.


<CR> means carriage return which is the ASCII character 0x0D or char(13) but not the individual characters ‘<’ ‘C’ ‘R’ ‘>’

If manually typing commands in a Telnet terminal, <CR> simply means pressing the ENTER key
